Anyone using the LW arms? Did it make a noticeable difference? How much lighter are they?

My car had the LW arms on the car when I got it from my friend...the car itself ran great today but I was down on power due to turbo fade. I didn't have the other arms on the car to compare with though...but the car did handle very well.

Does anyone have any base setups or tips for setup that may work with foam on outdoor asphalt, with no traction compounds either.
I ran a few times late last year with the basic rubber setup on foam, and it was fairly good, but I can't help feeling it could be a lot better, thinking possibly thicker bars and maybe less toe to pick up speed on the foams, cause they seem to wash some off.
There is the foam setup in the manual, but that seems geared to high grip carpet with sauced tyres, likely too stiff on more bumpy outdoor.

They are not 8 grams lighter each.

They are about 3.5 grams lighter each.

I personally didn't notice a huge handling difference switching arms but some people seem to.

ive tried both and i think there is just a slight bit more traction with the regular arms ,if ur going to lose some grams try to take a little weight of the top of the car some things i did were ,dremel and shave the top of the shock towers a little,cut body post low,and things like that will make a more noticeable difference but overall its not really going to be much that is noticed but thats just me

I should hopefully have a set this weekend. I'll post what I find.

I'm only replacing mine because I found that one of my arms have a bit of play in it. So I figured I might as well try these new arms out.

with the upcoming (or current... not really sure) ROAR touring car weight of 1380 -- and the IFMAR standard of 1350 I think the light weight arms so be apart of anyones "program". it is the easiest way to save weight....
